Across Cultures EXHIBITION (pdf)
Maggie Hollins 'The Turtle' (multi media with poem) was exhibited in the Bainz Gallery, Wangaratta, as part of Goulburn and North East Arts Alliance group exhibition 'It's in the Bag' in 2018. Maggie read 'The Turtle' at the Summer Solstice Poetry Reading at NEA in December 2018. Our Autumn Equinox Poetry Reading is on Friday 22 March from 7 to 9 pm in Gallery 2. $5 donation.
Paint Presto is a wonderful complement to the Wangaratta Jazz Festival. On Day 2 It's most enjoyable to wonder between venues and come across the artists developing their work in the streets and in the outside venues. Last year on Day 2 (Saturday) 'Paint Day', Janet Leith could be found painting outside the Wangaratta Art Gallery next to the Jazz Festival's WPACC jazz venues; while Frank Burgers had a most enjoyable time along with some other artists in the Blues tent.
The Paint Presto website is well worth visiting if you would like to find out more - https://www.paintpresto.com - and if you would like to apply. The last day for entries is October 30.
